for more action going after romney/ryan on the 47%. >> these are the folks who talk about 47% of the american people being unwilling to take responsibility. it's about time governor romney takes some responsibility. >> biden had the crowd fired up after a debate performance many wish the president had given. one in which he outlined a blistering attack on his opponents, delivering a flurry of punches from the opening bell. >> romney said, no, let detroit go bankrupt. we moved in and helped people refinance their homes. governor romney said, no, let foreclosures hit the bottom. but it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. my friend recently in a speech in washington said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad, the people i grew up with, my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. >> indeed. biden's performance was so impressive, the other party was forced to admit that they had taken a hiding. with even mit
in the ground, in ohio. >> i'm so glad you brought that up, mr. romney. let's talk about that now. your jobs plan. let's do it. let's get right to our panel. here in new york msnbc political analyst david corn, author of the new book "47%", richard walls, one of my many bosses and in washington, karen finney. richard, i have to put this to you. romney says he will create 12 million jobs by cutting taxes across the board by 20% -- >> he's not going to cut taxes. >> hang on, which economists said cal cates to about $5 trillion but romney now says he won't cut taxes at 20% across the board and it won't accumulate $5 trillion in that sense. so is romney a presidential candidate or a ventriloquist? >> well, he's certainly a great debater with himself, right? because that would be a very interesting argument, the guy who promises tax cuts but says there are no tax cuts. a guy who says we shouldn't be having mission creep in libya but wants mission creep in syria. he's been on all sides of the issues. >> that's just in the last week. >> the president needs to just say these things, it's not obvious
to say my views on abortion are not at issue, martha. it's governor romney's views we're talking about. and i don't want to confuse views, so my sponsorship of all these bills is not relevant to the conversation. then what he's going to do is pivot and start attacking president obama on this question of obama care require, catholic affiliated institutions provide contraception. >> so basically don't answer the question, just divert? >> he'll do that. >> he'll divert? >> for sure. >> robert, here is how paul ryan's 28 2008 opponent described debating him. i'm quoting. it was like nailing jello to the wall. he would just change his story as convenient and make up facts to fit what he was -- what he wanted to say. i mean, joe biden's really got his work cut out, doesn't he, robert? >> i would make the argument joe biden does have his work cut out, regardless of congressman ryan's previous statements or the previous opponent's statements. there are a lot of democrats out there putting a lot of hopes on vice president biden to knock this out of the park because of the president's lackluster
. viagra. talk to your doctor. >>> paul ryan's weeks of debate prep have been turned upside down 24 hours from his debate thanks to his old friend mitt romney. romney's views about abortion would make ryan, who has sponsored 38 antiabortion laws, including one with todd akin, now we know where he stands. listen to this question he answered 24 hours ago. >> how is the debate prep? >> it went well. >> how is your position on abortions and your running mates? >> it's unified. our positives haven't changed. >> what is your position? >> i'm sure you'll find out in these debates. >> joining us now, here in new york, jonathan alter, and in rhode island, robert traynham. thank you. i assume paul ryan will never complain will-b a softball question, but second, when do we know where he stands on abortion? when is that supposed to happen? >> they're going to get down into in on the debate about abortion. >> he can't answer a reporter's question? he sponsored 38 pieces of legislation -- >> he's on the fly. the reason it's complicated answer for him -- i'm not trying to defend him here, but the reason
about american planes creating a no-fly zone in the romney speech. we're not talking about creation of any kind of a humanitarian protected ground zone up in the north -- >> but, michael, i'm sorry to interrupt you, mike, but we wouldn't expect any details from this man because he never gives us any. t the overarching theme is he wants a new approach. not the approach being expedited by the president. i accept he hasn't gone into details but he doesn't give us details about domestic policy. do you not accept that that's what he's saying, that he's pushing this country, were he to be in a position of authority, toward some military conflict? >> to be honest with you, i'm more worried about iran policy than syria policy. on syria policy, i don't hear the distinction as being as great as you are. you're right to point out the candidates haven't been so specific we can be sure and we can still have this debate because the candidates have not resolved their own stances very clearly. on iran policy, as your package pointed out, they both say an iranian nuclear weapon is unacceptable, but
care. he has to talk about that vicious budget. speak about his, if you will, redoing of the budget, but he's got to not allow him to do is makeover in the debate the same way that mr. romney did against president bush. he's got to call him on it in live time right there on the spot so that he can't associate himself with the new romney. he's got to associate mr. ryan with his budget recommendations and with the draconian measures that have been put forth in the past. >> and that budget of course voted on only a few months ago. mark, what are the other main weaknesses you see starting with paul ryan and moving on to joe biden? >> i think his biggest challenge is expectations. you have been talking about that pew poll that shows more people thought that paul ryan is going to do better than joe biden. i watched joe biden four years ago in all the democratic primary debates. he did very, very well. i think going into this debate, joe biden has been underestimated. the guy will come off very, very well, and you end up having a republican base that has put so much energy into paul ryan,
